    Happy families need love, and attention and stability, parents  should be good role models and provide for their children until they are old enough to support themselves, a family with  good values can be a happy family

    Certainly one of the most important elements in a happy family is the amount of time spent together. I do not believe that a family which is always on the go and extremely busy (too busy to spend much time together) can be truly happy. This is mostly the responsibility of the parents to ensure that they are spending a good deal of time with each other and with their children, learning about one another and enjoying the company of one another. I've heard the testimonies of many children that strongly desired one thing---for their parents to spend time with them. Quality family time together is something that cannot be bought---it is practiced.

    Love, communication and stability. Communication is always key to me I think.

    Definitely quality time. Not quantity time that counts watching TV. Time to look each other in the eyes. Time spent that makes you a team. Trusting others to have your back.

    Children being planned, wanted, and loved by their parents.  Having the number of children to assure individualized parental attention and span of control without enlisting oldest children to raise younger siblings.  Parents treating and loving all their children equally.  No parental favoritism regarding children.  Children KNOW who is the family favorite although parents may steadfastly deny that there is favoritism.   

    Having a lifestyle which includes the finer things and amenities in life so that children can appreciate the finer aspects of life and know that there is more to life than bare, instinctual survival at the most primitive level.   Haveing enough monies for education, foreign travel, and participating in cultural activities.  Children who are exposed to art are happier and more well rounded that those who are not.

    Having a socioeconomic lifestyle beyond the poverty level, preferably at the more affluent socioeconomic level.  Studies have confirmed that poverty and socioeconomic struggle have a negative impact on children emotionally, psychologically, mentally, and academically.  Children who grow up in impoverished or near impoverished conditions are not happy as they are in often insecure and perilous familial situations.  Their parents are constantly worrying about making ends meet.   Such children often have to work as children to support their families. Children who are affluent are the happiest as their needs are taking care of and more.
